Rasulullah ﷺ Invites Hadhrat Dhi Jowshin Dhababi رضي الله عنه


Hadhrat Dhi Jowshin Dhababi رضي الله عنه narrates, “I came to Rasulullaah after the Battle of Badr and brought with him the foal of my horse Qar’haa. I said to Rasulullaah ﷺ, ‘O Muhammad! I have brought for me the foal of my horse Qar’haa so that you may use it for yourself.’ Rasulullaah ﷺ replied, ‘I have no need for it. However, if you wish to exchange it for a suit of armour from the Battle of Badr, you could have any suit you choose.’ I replied, ‘I am not prepared to exchange this pedigreed horse today.’

Rasulullaah ﷺ said, ‘I have no need for it. O Dhi Jowshin! Will you not accept Islaam to become among the first to accept Islaam?’ When I replied in the negative, Rasulullaah ﷺ asked, “Why not?”

I said, “Because I see that your people are upset with you.” He ﷺ asked me, “How did you receive the news of the defeat (of the Mushrikeen) at Badr?” “I said, “All the news has reached me.” He ﷺ said, “We will have to give you guidance (to Islaam).”

“On condition that you take control of the Kabah and start living there,” I responded.

Rasulullaah ﷺ said, “If you are alive then, you shall certainly see it.”
Rasulullaah ﷺ then said to Hadhrat Bilaal رضي الله عنه , “O Bilaal! Take the man’s satchel and fill it with Ajwa dates as a provision for his journey.”

As Hadhrat Dhi Jowshin رضي الله عنه was leaving, Rasulullaah ﷺ said to the Sahabah رضي الله عنهم , “He is among the finest horsemen of the Banu Aamir tribe.”


Hadhrat Dhi Jowshin رضي الله عنه continues the story when he said, “By Allaah! I was with my family in a place called Ghowr when a rider arrived. I asked him, “What have people been doing?” He replied, “By Allaah! Muhammad has taken control of the Kabah and is living there.”

When I heard this, I said to myself, ‘If only my mother had lost me as a child. If only I had accepted Islaam that day. If I had even asked Rasulullaah ﷺ for the district of Heera then, he would have allotted it to me.'”
